Gameloft today announced that it has become the latest brand to join Sprint's growing line of ID Packs.
The two bundles each bring Sprint consumers four of Gameloft's popular Android games along with direct access to news, updates, and more. Depending on what type of gamer you are, or how powerful your handset is, you can install either the HD Games ID Pack or Top Games ID Pack. And for those who simply cannot decide, Sprint allows users to have up to five ID Packs on each handset.
The HD Games ID Pack is designed to run on … Read more
Details for Sprint's next Android-powered tablet have leaked online and if you thought the carrier was going high-end you'd be completely wrong.
According to a leak obtained by SprintFeed, we can expect to see the ZTE Optik arrive in early February with a $100 price tag. You'll still have to sign a two-year agreement with a minimum rate plan, but things could be worse.
Hardware for the 7-inch ZTE tablet is impressive for the money and includes a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 16GB storage, and 1GB RAM. Running Android 3.2 Honeycomb, its additional specifications include a … Read more
Motorola has made the claim that it will bring upgraded cell phone smarts to its upcoming line of handsets.
Billed as "Smart Actions," this feature is designed to help smartphone beginners remove complexity from their devices. … Read more
T-Mobile and AT&T formally asked the Federal Communications Commission today to approve the transfer of $1 billion in wireless spectrum due to T-Mobile following following the failed merger between the two carriers.
In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, Tom Sugrue, T-Mobile's senior vice president for government affairs, said that the additional spectrum will help the carrier meet the growing demand for wireless broadband services. "We hope the FCC will move swiftly to approve the license assignments," he wrote.
The new handset has all the powerful features of the well-received Droid Razr while almost doubling the battery to an impressive 21 hours of talk time. I won't refuse more juice in a smartphone, particularly one that's just 0.28 inches thick, but there's no escaping that the Droid Razr Maxx is a recycled version of an existing device. And while that's a bit disappointing, it's also fitting when you consider the handset's name.
Indeed, it was almost five years ago when Moto and Verizon introduced the Razr Maxx Ve. Yes, the "Droid" name was still a few years off, but this Razr Maxx was another child in the very large Razr V3 family. … Read more
HTC has begun sending out press invitations to a February 26 event that takes place on the literal eve of Mobile World Congress.
After essentially skipping out on Las Vegas and CES altogether, we should be in for a real treat next month. Details for at least three Android handsets and one tablet have already emerged with perhaps more on the horizon.
You may recall, HTC had six devices on the agenda for the show last year including the Flyer tablet. Judging by the early rumors, the company may not reach that number for the 2012 event, but it is … Read more
When it comes to mobile security, common perception is that RIM's Blackberry devices have the market locked up. But in this age of personal iPhones and Androids migrating to corporate networks, does it really matter?
We also inhabit an era of disclosing everything you do online, including sharing your live location, publicly announcing shopping preferences, not to mention making purchases with digital wallets. I argue that attitudes have shifted since the time of a RIM-dominated handset market.
Okay, let's be clear, smartphones today hold a frightening amount of personal data. From email, texts, to real-time position and Web … Read more
When I first caught wind of the Meizu MX, I have to say I was skeptical. That's because Meizu is known in gadget circles, and especially to iOS fanboys, as that evil Chinese company that copies Apple designs to create its own Android handsets.
Serious Android adherents, though, the sort who spend time loitering in dark corners of the Internet and seedy tech forums like XDA Developers (a great resource, by the way), have a different view of Meizu.To these bold folk, Meizu is a daring champion of innovation with the mission of proving that what Apple does is nothing special. In fact, Android phones can do much more than iPhones, with just as much flash and polish. … Read more
